Hello there! My name’s Courtney van Stolk. I’m a wandering earth scientist with experience in: observing roadside geology while not driving off the road on cross-country road trips, measuring lichen in the Andean archaeological sites while dodging alpacas, losing hiking boots while conducted impromptu mud-viscosity survey (a.k.a. passage cartography) in Mammoth Cave, environmental consulting, and optimizing the education:chaos ratio of natural science school trips in California’s national parks. I’m looking to build a career that will help us take care of our precious water resources on this lonely blue marble in space!

I graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2013 after creating my own major, Environmental Policy, to combine geology with the social science and economics that happen when you add human behavior into the natural environment.

I just graduated this past June from Oregon State Univesity with my M.S. in Geography! My thesis work asked “How does groundwater and isotopic chemistry indicate groundwater interactions with faults in the Columbia River Basalt of the Walla Walla Basin?” and was supported by the Oregon Water Resources Department, a teaching assistantship at OSU, and the U.S. Geological Survey.

Right now I’m looking for career opportunities as a geologist, hydrogeologist, or environmental scientist in the Pacific Northwest.
